So I wanna get my car detailed wax and all that stuff.. I have orange feel and swirls. It looks good from far but far from good.

I'm just looking for a recommendation for someone in OC that is reasonable in price that can revive my ride..

Let me know if you know some quality detailers

I'm sure everyone else will tell you, but orange peel removal is a serious process, something a simple compound won't remove. Lots of work involved in getting rid of that if that's what you really want, and it's not cheap.

This is true. To the OP, it's a huge undertaking that costs north of $4,000.

Jimmy Lucci with http://www.luccielite.com/

He has done some of my friends SLS, NSX and GT-R's. He has done everything from X5 Bmw's to many Veyron's. I would highly recommend him.

eclipsisNA is also incredible. He has done some world class paint corrections on M3's with orange peel removal.

DIY!~

I got tired of constantly paying for detail work and not having it meet my standards (very picky)_..bought a D/A polisher and some gear..read up on the net, practiced on a few test panels...now I do all my own detailing..and its sort of fun..
